Diamond lost Half our comics – Wednesday, December 8th, 2021

Well, this sucks. Four weeks after switching our Marvels back to Diamond, reducing our number of comic distributors from 3 to 2, and our workload by several hours per week, to make up for much of the higher wholesale cost, Diamond did something I’ve never seen in 30+ years of dealing with them. They lost a huge part of our order, somewhere in the neighborhood of 50%. We don’t know when they might be found, or even if, because they don’t answer the phone. We just leave a message. By the time you read this, we may know something. There are 72 (72!) “xx”‘s on the list below. Those are the ones that are missing. Watch our Facebook page for news.

If it has been more than 4 weeks since you’ve been in,  we moved This Week’s Marvels. They are on the opposite wall, in front of the last few week’s Marvels, which have been there for months. Just turn and go between or around the A-Frame shelves, and look for the red “This Week” cards. So far, we like it. Let us know what you think. And for now, our list also has the Marvels separated out after all  the other comics.

I’m having trouble finding good images in any kind of normal layout. Thanks to League Of Comic Geeks for this week’s images, which are in some unusual, non-alphabetical order, and 8 across. So it’s a somewhat random sample. I’ll keep searching. Use the list, and MAYBE the pictures will be useful.

We are enforcing a Mask Rule. We are concerned and frankly afraid of the Desantis Variant’s effectiveness and apparent success in younger people and children. So, please, take one for team America and get a vaccine.

Wednesday is STILL New Comic Day, no matter what you read on the internets. We can’t clear the new rack to just have 10 DC’s  surrounded by empty space.  We do it once, Wednesday morning. We encourage everyone to be careful, make your trip to our store quick and efficient, and try to come in to shop in smaller groups, and reduce your own exposure to ALL public places indoors, including ours. Watch this space and our Facebook page for latest news about the rest of the month, season, year, millenium, etc. (And text messages from 5-Star.) The complete list is found below. If you want to know about the next sale or store event, or whether or not WE ARE EVEN OPEN click here. Sign in here to get an email reminder for ALL sales and other events. Also, you can go to     fb.fantasybooksandgames.com and you’ll be taken to our Facebook page. We also use our in-store 5-Star Rewards system to text similar announcements to your phone.
